You need to follow a healthy diet. Avoid spicy foods, oily foods, outside junk foods, tea, coffee, sweets, sugars as much as possible. Have 4-5 short meals per day, instead of three big meals. Also drink plenty of water in between meals and little water during meals. You can take pantoprazole 40mg once in the morning half hour before your breakfast for one week. Avoid any habits of drinking and smoking. Sometimes stress can also trigger gastritis. So try relaxation methods like yoga or meditation. Also do not starve for too long. If this doesn't give you relief then consult a general physician or surgeon for further evaluation.

Hello there. 
I can understand your concern. 
Usually in such cases, antacids and antiemetic combination of drugs are prescribed.
But since you are still having difficilty and symptoms, better get it checked out for H.pylori infection.
Consult a gastroenterologist for the same.
As of now, you can take cap. Pantakind-flux once or twice a day before food.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.

You could be having an infection with probably H Pylori. You need to take an antibiotic course, PPI course along with a pre and probiotic medications. Small frequent meals, lots of fruits and vegetables, good quality of fluids would help you. Sleep on time. Exercise.
